  1. Default Re: Fly Line For Musky

    Thanks again for all of the help. Ted, you make some very good points and my goal is to definitely get another spool with whichever line I don't buy for my current one when finances permit. Jbird and delopez, thanks for your input, an intermediate is sounding pretty good. One question though: if I was fishing in, let's say, 8-10 feet of water would I be able to make it work with an intermediate?

    If I was fishing in 8-10' of water I'd go with a sink line. You want the ability to get the fly down as quick as you can. In 10' of water, chances are the musky isn't sitting in the top 1-2'. They're likely down closer to the bottom, because most of the time that is where the forage will be. If you can make your first three strips and have the fly down closer to the bottom, than you're going to have many more fish see and possibly chase your fly. It's all a numbers game with these fish. The more fish that see your fly, increase your odds at catching them. Give yourself every opportunity to put a fly in front of the fish.

    Thanks Ted, do you think a 350 would be a good fit?

    If it works for your rod, then yes. Although I might go a little heavier than that if I was constantly fishing deeper water.

    Your not going to need a floating line at all as Ted said and intermediate line works better for top water. I would go with a heavier line if your rod allows but thats just me. In my opinion you need a 10wt maybe more for musky fishing

  7. Default Fly Line For Musky

    Yea I already have a 10wt, just need some line. I'm thinking 400 or 450 grain at this point. Do any of you have a preference between sink tip and full sinking line?

    I would suggest the scientific anglers mastery series titan taper. It's made for throwing huge bugs. I've got it in a 6wt and I'm amazed at howit helps carry large flies.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I've also heard good things about airflo's streamer max lines as well.
